Biomechanics is the term used to describe movement of the body. In order to better understand the biomechanics of the spine it is important to understand the anatomy of the spine. The spine is one of the most complex parts of the body. The spine can be divided into five sections: the cervical section (the neck), the thoracic section (the upper back), the lumbar section (the lower back), the sacrum (part of the pelvis) and the coccyx (the tailbone). The main movements of the spine are to bend forward (flex), bend backward (extend), side-bend (side-flex), and rotate. Finally, normal spine biomechanics is required to maintain a healthy spine. Abnormal biomechanics can be classified as hypomobile (decreased) movement between vertebrae, hypermobile (increased) movement between vertebrae or instability (severe loss of stability).
